A buzkashi match between the teams of Afghanistan and Balochistan was played at Hockey Ground in Quetta the other day.

The contest drew huge crowd as the traditional game of buzkashi is very popular among the tribal areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Buzkashi, which literally translated means 'goat grabbing', is the national sport of Afghanistan.

The object of the game is to try to snatch the 150-pound (nearly 70-kilogram) carcass from the center of the field and carry it to a scoring area.
